Who are the Headlinerz?
Upstart group the Headlinerz are the next big wave in the music industry. They work hard, they have positive personalities, everyone that meets them loves them; these boys don’t know how to just sit there when their song is being played. They have to perform every word and every line; that’s showmanship at its best. These boys are stars and are most definitely fit to be entertainers.
As you see yourselves, who are the Headlinerz?
The Headlinerz are Atlanta’s new super group. This duo stands out in any room they enter, with their strong personalities and super high energetic vibe. They are the life of the party!

What brought you to the entertainment industry and music specifically?
Kam: I’ve been a fan of the Hip Hop culture my entire life. At a young age, I knew music was what I wanted to do. When I was in 8th grade at Miller Grove Middle School when I met this new kid from Indianapolis named Cul-de-sac Kid. He heard me rap outside the school, invited me to his Studio and the rest is Legendary.
Cul-de-Sac Kid: My dad had a recording studio in the house and was always working with different Artists, so there was always music around me. One day I got in trouble at school and my punishment was to write a song. At the time I didn’t want to do it, but when we started recording the song; I started having fun and my punishment turned into my reward.
